ICF International has won a potential five-year, $189 million recompete contract to help carry out a health survey for the U.S. Agency of International Development.
The company will collect and analyze data on population, health and nutrition from 75 countries and work with in-country development leaders to use the data for program planning and policymaking, ICF said Wednesday.
“In an era of scarce resources, high quality data are essential for developing successful and effective programs in developing countries, ” said Sunita Kishor, a senior program director at ICF.
Since 1984, USAID has carried out more than 300 surveys in 90 countries under the Demographic and Health Surveys program.
USAID also aims to build capacity among in-country institutions and individuals through DHS-7, ICF says.
